Ultrastructure of wheat seedling mitochondria under anoxia and postanoxia


An ultrastructural study of cells on intact wheatTriticum aestivum seedlings showed that the root tip cells were more sensitive to anoxia than other organs. Root growth stopped completely in anaerobic medium. After 1.5 h of anoxia noticeable mitochondrial swelling, reduction of cristae and matrix clarification were observed. These early destructive changes… (More)
